The birthday boy’s birthday wish: CRABS

Birthday Meals.  I’m pretty sure you all have your favorite things to eat on your birthday’s.  For JodiesDaddy, it would rotate among 3:  Shabu-shabu (or hotpot), steak or CRABS.  For this year’s celebration, his wish was CRABS.  Not just any ordinary crabs, but the Crab Sotanghon from Hong Kong Master Cook in Seaside Market along Macapagal Avenue.

Yes, I know I’ve written about Hong Kong Master Cook countless of times already.  But indulge me as I share (once again) our staples:

  • Crab Sotanghon

    Almost a kilo (900grams to be exact) of fresh-water crabs cooked with vermicelli. JodiesDaddy wiped this out.
  • Inihaw na Liempo (Grilled Pork Belly)

    I don’t know what it is with eating grilled pork anywhere but at home, but it always tastes sooooo much better. It might be seasoned with only salt and pepper, but still – it’s always THE BOMB! We nearly wiped 1/2 a kilo of this.
  • Salt and Pepper Squid

    This is not to be confused with calamares. This is so much better. A simple dish of of squid coated with salt and pepper, but I am pretty sure they put a dash of MSG in there 😉
  • Fried Rice

    Processed with VSCO with a10 preset
    I was the only one who wanted rice since JodiesDaddy is on a no-rice diet.  We had a ton of leftover rice haha
  • Scallops with Tausi (black beans)

    We normally have this sauce with elephant shells. We opted for scallops this time. Same taste different seafood.

It seems a lot right?  Well, it was and we came home with a lot of leftovers!  Just thinking of this lunch is making me drool.

What is your favorite meal to have on your birthday?
